living inspiration: from picture to room.

a request...pretty in pink...

Happy Monday Ladies…

Hope your weekend went great. GT decided to share with you a request from a Get Togetha reader who wanted home decor inspiration from the “pretty in pink” background wall paper.  The color Pink is an ultra feminine and fun color so the best way to rock it is to glam it up with shine! This affordable but quality roundup is for a small space corner nook or a foyer so that you can have a restful place to just chill, read or reflect. All items are affordably priced…one hundred dollars or less…

If you have any pics for inspiration e-mail me at hello@gettogetha.com or contact GT here  for pricing and I’ll turn it into a room for you and your fellow Brown Sistas. You can live glam too…didn’t you know?

So what do you think?

Get Togetha here and TGIF. Everyone’s feeling the tight crunch of the re..re..re..recession (gosh I hate sayin it) but that’s no reason to not update here and there and not live in style. Back in the days our parents didn’t have as many stylish and affordably dirt cheap options as we do today.

get togetha: the art of intimacy.

living well: love is work, commitment and intimacy.

Get Togetha thinks the word “intimacy” scares the BeJesus out of sistas cause its something that is so lacking in our everyday lives. Where did we go wrong in admitting that we need love just as much as any other human being? Women thrive on intimacy! It makes us feel alive and its how bonds are created. We hate feeling like we’re being used for that three letter word, we crave romance and don’t wanna always have to give up some booty to get it in the end. Examples of love are all around us but the truth of the matter is that it takes behind the scene’s work to make it last. Here’s 13 Get Togetha’s living tips on bringing back the art intimacy. Be forewarned. Some tips are controversial. Continue Reading

reader poll: Valentine’s Day.

Valentine's Day Living.

*Waves Hi*

What’s good Brown Sista family!  GT here. This week I’m just poking my head in to conduct a little survey. This week over at the Get Togetha blog I’ll be featuring some great gift ideas for Valentines Day. Now I know that Valentine’s day is a little over two weeks away; but if you walk into any drugstore the red hearts, the Russell Stover chocolates and the cutesy cards have already began to surface. But I also wanted to take a little reader poll. It seems as if many of us are divided when it comes to celebrating this Holiday. Some of us love the thought of celebrating with gifts and the finer things and some of us are dead set against the commercial material aspect of what Valentine’s day has turned out to be. And better yet some of us might be inspired by the love of Michelle and Barack and do something extra special this year.

So Brown Sistas and Fellas…what are your expectations for Valentine’s Day? Are you the traditional roses and candy type, or do you treat it like it were just any other ordinary day?  Valentine’s Day: Yay or Nay?

your thoughts.

yes we did!

Brown Sistas and Fellas.

It’s a new day! And all I can say is that there can’t be a man/woman/child alive who isn’t touched by what President Barack Obama and his beautiful wife Michelle have accomplished. The Obamas make GT want to be better, be smarter, serve more, and take even more personal responsibility for living my best life. And since The Brown Sista Family is a community…share your thoughts on yesterday’s amazing inauguration. Did you hear Barack’s Speech? Did you go to DC? Did you love Michelle’s Outfits? Did you mix your mascara with your tears? Share your inspiration. GT.

Yes We Did!
